Abra, would you share more of your vast knowledge about how a mother's gut flora transfers to an infant's? I'm really interested in that and read a little more about it online but didn't quite understand how it happens. I'm feeling so fortunate that I was making such great strides improving my digestive health for months leading up to TTC Sora, and I didn't even know it would affect her own gut flora! I'm motivated to really do an overhaul before I conceive any more children in the future.
I don't know what is die-off, what is PMS, what is withdrawal from eliminated foods, or any of that anymore. I'm kind of frustrated today. Mentally I've been feeling amazing, but physically I'm not feeling so great the past few days. I'm nauseous off and on, feel like sleeping a lot, and I can't control my body temperature. I've lost 6 lbs and planned to wait until I hit 20 or so before I get my thyroid checked again for a possible med adjustment (hypothyroid over here), but now that I'm having so much trouble with my body temp, maybe I should just set up an appointment sooner... I wonder if changing my diet so dramatically could've really affected my thyroid levels this quickly? All I know is it really really sucks. It could all just be menstrual-related, though. I never know what my body is going to do in any given month anymore. The baby broke me! lol
